You all are in my thoughts and prayers.  I remember hearing her voice cheering on Marcie and Tiffany at softball games way back when.  That was many moons ago, but seems like yesterday.  She was a great lady, full of laughter and happiness.  So sorry to hear of her passing, May God keep you in his hands and help you thru this difficult time.

To you all:  We pray you will all receive comfort knowing that she is no longer in pain, and can breath on her own again....I know it won't be easy going on without her, but hold on tight to the memories of a mother that loved you all.  We hope you can all hold onto each other with love and hope to continue to maintain the tight family structure that both your mother and father instilled in all of you.  We love you guys.
